Hello friends. This week the challenge over at Merry Monday is to use a candy cane on your card. I'm using a peppermint stick instead as my candy cane supply is extremely limited, and I just love this stamp from Walter & Winnie's Holiday Trimmings (Holiday SOA). Take a look:
I used the "smooshing" technique with Salty Ocean distress ink for my background, and then added my cut out peppermint stick and one of the little birds from Penny Black's Winter Wonderland set (colored with R29, R39, & E31 Copics). My sentiment is from Neat and Tangled Bright Baubles. I decided to add some water spots at the last minute, and my Aqua Painter must not have been very clean, because the spots came out kind of green looking, but they're kinda growing on me! I finished with a few sequins and some glitter on the birdie's Santa hat.
There's still a few days left to play along with this challenge, so if you haven't finished your Christmas cards yet, this is a great challenge to help you finish up! You can check out all the info to play along and find some great inspiration from the DT (and players) all right HERE.
I'm also going to enter this card over at HLS December CAS Challenge, where they want you to use your favorite technique on your card...hands down "Smooshing" and watercoloring has been a big favorite of mine this past year! You can find all the info you need to play along with this challenge right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
